Intervarsity Introduces Evangelism Mobile App

intervarsity_evangelism_appInternet Evangelism Day is April 21. That’s just 2 days away.  If your organization has not done anything to prepare, don’t worry, it’s not too late.  IED is all about letting the folks in your organization know about the great opportunities we have to share our faith online and encouraging them to make the most of those opportunities.

So even if this is the first you’re hearing about it, you can write a blog post about sharing your faith online, tweet/share someone else’s post about it, or start a conversation in social media  by asking a question like, “What do you think about sharing your faith online? Have you done that? How did it go?”

Evangelism… Yes, There’s an App for That

A lot of people are apprehensive about trying to explain their faith to their friends.  ”What if it comes out all jumbled?”  ”What if I sound like I don’t know what I’m talking about?” “What if my friend asks me a question I don’t know the answer to?”

Intervarsity Christian Fellowship has developed the New World Gospel Presentation mobile app to help with that.

Based on material from True Story by James Choung, this free app helps you illustrate the main points of the gospel message by drawing four “worlds” on your screen.

Suggested dialogue and Scripture references are included for each world to help you explain the gospel as you draw.

The opportunity to make a decision for Jesus Christ and join his mission to heal the world is presented at the end; a suggested prayer is included.

Features 

  • Draw each world by tracing its outline as you explain each step.
  • Save or erase your drawings.
  • Flip each of your drawings over for suggested dialogue and Scripture references.
  • Offer a suggested prayer to Jesus for those who want to commit their lives to Christ.
  • Email a PDF recap of the New World Gospel Presentation to follow-up after your discussion.

The app is available for iOS (iPhone, iPod, iPad) and Android.

What do you think?  Could this app help you share your faith more easily? Could it help your friends or the people in your church or ministry share their faith?
